    shame on everyone who allows themselves to get swept away by the slick salesman. healthcare for everyone is a wonderful goal, so is a chicken in every pot .. but outright dishonesty about the cost is unforgivable. did anyone really believe this was going to be some sort miraculous zero sum transformation or transaction? but this is what the people voted for, so time to fall in step and pay. maybe consider paying attention next time a politician says "trust me, it's going to be fine".
